SECTION 16-77.3-8


§ 16-77.3-8 Charter school reporting.

(a) All independent charter schools shall continuously monitor their financial operations by tracking actual versus budgeted revenue and expense. The chief financial officer of the independent charter school shall submit a report on a quarterly basis to the state office of municipal affairs certifying the status of the independent charter school budget. The quarterly reports shall be in a format prescribed by the state office of municipal affairs and the state auditor general. The reports shall contain a statement as to whether any actual or projected shortfalls in budget line items are expected to result in a year-end deficit, the projected impact on year-end financial results including all accruals and encumbrances, and how the independent charter school plans to address any such shortfalls.

(b) The auditor general or the state director of administration may petition the superior court to order the independent charter school to file said reports. The director of administration may also direct the state controller and general treasurer to withhold any funding to the independent charter school until the school complies with the reporting requirements hereunder. Failure to comply with this section shall be cause for the revocation of the school charter.
